Event Details


More than 50 years ago Bruce Cockburn released his debut self-titled album, which included “Going To The Country” and “Musical Friends.”  Although mostly recorded in late 1969, the album first hit the stores and airwaves in 1970 and started his long musical journey that continues to this day.  Cockburn has written more than 350 songs on 34 albums, including the essential hits “Lovers in a Dangerous Time,” “If I Had a Rocket Launcher,” “Wondering Where The Lions Are” among many others.  Eddie Van Halen had referred to Cockburn as the “world’s best guitarist.”  A multiple JUNO Award-winner and Canadian Songwriter’s Hall of Fame Inductee, Bruce’s songs have been covered by many artists including Jimmy Buffet, Jerry Garcia, kd Lang, Barenaked Ladies, Elbow, Judy Collins, Chet Atkins, and on and on.

To be active and relevant in music for 50 years is a significant achievement for any individual recording artist. To celebrate this milestone, Bruce Cockburn and True North Records have produced True North – A 50th Anniversary Box Set, a Limited Edition vinyl box set containing three of Bruce’s most significant recordings. The first album where it all started, the self-titled debut Bruce Cockburn along with two albums that have never before been released on vinyl; The Charity of Night and Breakfast in New Orleans, Dinner in Timbuktu.

Visit Ancient Mariner for dinner the night of the show and enjoy a complimentary glass of house wine or draft beer with the purchase of an entree with your ticket!
